Our church is a more than just a place to go or an event to attend; we are a community of people who have been changed by the love of God and want to change our community in response. It's our desire to make known the good news of God's love within our own congregation as well as outside the walls in our community. Following the model of Jesus, it's the heart of our church to love those around us by meeting their needs, sharing our lives, and offering them the life-changing grace of the Christian faith. We believe that it's the gospel of Christ that truly changes people, and those people are the ones who change the world. We would love to welcome you into our community and walk alongside you to serve those around us in the name of Jesus.
We are a community of people who are in process. We have imperfect messy lives, but we are pursuing and experiencing a transforming relationship with Jesus and with each other. Our one goal is to lead people in a growing relationship with Jesus. We try to do this with every interaction we have - whether on Sunday mornings at our services, or at any of our many ministries and outreaches. Everybody is welcome here, whatever your story, your questions, doubts or struggles. We’re all about doing life together in community, being intentional about our growth as people and serving one another and our community along the way.
The gospel is ultimately about humanity being restored to God’s community. Only through practicing community will individuals grow fully in the grace and knowledge to be found in Jesus. Furthermore, it is through community that a fragmented world can best witness the power of the gospel and the nature of God’s work. As a culture of confession, transformation, friendship, forgiveness, justice, power, and love springs up in the lives of normal people, those who don’t know Christ will be compelled to ask what is happening.
Welcome! It is a real joy for us to meet newcomers and to tell you about all the good things God is doing in our church family. For over fifteen years now it has been our mission to love God and love People. That means that no matter where you have come from and where you are on your spiritual journey, we want to come alongside to inspire, equip and encourage you to live out a life that will bring glory to God and be a blessing to the world.
Here's all you need to know before you show up for your first Sunday morning gathering: Come as you are. 10: 00 am every Sunday Morning. Our hope is you make a personal connection with Jesus. Whether it happens when you first walk in and are greeted, or in the personal devotion, or worship, or teaching or personal prayer after, our prayer is that God meets you in an undeniable way. You don't need any manual to figure out how to fit in. Jesus simply says: "Come to me" and we say the same. Just come as you are!
We'd love to meet you!
